Null SplitterΒΆ

Plugin Name: NullSplitter

The NullSplitter is used in cases where the incoming data is already naturally divided into logical messages, such that Heka doesn’t need to do any further splitting. For instance, when used in conjunction with a UdpInput, the contents of each UDP packet will be made into a separate message.

Note that this means generally the NullSplitter should not be used with a stream oriented input transport, such as with TcpInput or LogstreamerInput. If this is done then the splitting will be arbitrary, each message will contain whatever happens to be the contents of a particular read operation.

The NullSplitter has no configuration options, and is automatically registered as an available splitter plugin of the name “NullSplitter”, so it doesn’t require a separate TOML configuration section.
